    I agree with this, what the killing of Osama means, is the GOP can't attack him on weakness.

    My beef with approval ratings is that "approve" vs. "disapprove" are such general and inaccurate terms. How bout "I think he is doing a mediocre job"? Where is that option?
    I travel every week, all over the country. The support ain't there, at least not among the working people I deal with. I can't imagine the non-working people are that giddy either.

    "Approve of," and "support," are two different terms with different meanings. I think that might be part of it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Then why have you not actually addressed the sampling? You have only addressed another part of the poll results, and this is something that your source provides an explanation for.

    No you have not. How do you identify is a result, not a sampling method.

    no I'd rather not deal with someone who resorts to blatantly lying about me. I've tried to explain it to you, you'd rather make **** up me taking issue with the results, rather than address the skewed polling group.


    Call it what you want brother, the reality is, you resorted to dishonesty here, because I don't think polls are usually very accurate given that they can be manipulated to ones favor.

    There is on example. Show me an example where I ever defended a poll, Have I used them in debate sure., but I will always admit they can be used for whatever one wants.

    Prove me wrong.

    BTW: 2009 called, they want thier link back.

    Here is a more recent poll.

    Note his approval rating is higher than obamas.

    Seriously though, what say you about this revealation regarding the high hopes of Obama dimminishing by the minute here?
    As I said Rev, nothing but hypocrisy. Poll ratings seem to be good for your goose... not that great for the gander.
